Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) overexpression has been associated frequently with squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) and SCC cell lines. In most cases the level of EGFR on the tumours from which the cell lines were derived has not been determined, nor have EGFR levels been determined for xenograft tumours from the cell lines. In this study we(More)
A promising new treatment for glioma involves Auger electron emitters such as 125I or 123I conjugated to deoxyuridine (IUdR). However, the presence in tumour deposits of non-proliferating cells with clonogenic potential poses a major limitation to this cycle-specific therapy. We have used multicellular tumour spheroids derived from the human glioma cell(More)
Radioiodinated iododeoxyuridine (IUdR) is a novel, cycle-specific agent that has potential for the treatment of residual malignant glioma after surgery. As only cells in S-phase incorporate IUdR into DNA, a major limitation to this therapy is likely to be proliferative heterogeneity of the tumour cell population. Using a clonogenic end point, we have(More)
To test the hypothesis that altered expression of BRCA1 protein may play an important role in sporadic breast cancer development, 50 randomly selected primary breast cancers (frozen sections, 5 years' median follow-up) were immunolabelled with two monoclonal BRCA1 antibodies (MS110 and MS13). MS110 labelling was exclusively nuclear showing no relation to(More)
Although intra-luminal epidermal growth factor (EGF) may stimulate cell proliferation in the upper gastrointestinal tract, its role in the large bowel has not been established. We have therefore studied the effect of intra-rectal EGF administration on both normal growth and carcinogenesis in the rat colon. Colonic cancer was induced in rats with(More)
The Auger electron emitting agent 5-[125I]iodo-2'-deoxyuridine (i.e. [125I]IUdR) holds promise for the treatment of residual glioma after surgery because this thymidine analogue kills only proliferating cells. However, malignant cells which are not synthesizing DNA during exposure to the radiopharmaceutical will be spared. To determine whether tumour(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate whether Salkovskis (1985) inflated responsibility model of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) applied to children. In an experimental design, 81 children aged 9-12 years were randomly allocated to three conditions: an inflated responsibility group, a moderate responsibility group, and a reduced responsibility(More)
